cron doesn't notice timezone changes
Last modified: 2015-08-05 10:49:18 EDT
Description of problem:
When my laptop changes timezone, cron jobs continue to run as though it was still in the old timezone.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use 'crontab' to add job to run at specific time. Mine is:
45 7 * * * $HOME/bin/aup > $HOME/aup.out 2>&1
2. Change the time zone in Settings.
Job runs at specified time in old timezone.
Job runs at specified time in current timezone.
Is this a regression? As it is probably not I'd say this is a feature request. You need to restart the crond to notice the timezone change.
